Package containing body part shuts down VRE tracks in Manassas Park

Virginia Railway Express spokesman Mark Roeber said VRE was notified of a suspicious package on the tracks near Manassas Drive just before 6 p.m. VRE notified police, who had also been notified and gone to the scene.

In the package, police found a human body part, Roeber said. Manassas Park police didn’t tell VRE any other details, except to say it was not a head.

Human Remains Found In Bag On VRE Train Tracks

http://m.wusa9.com/news/article?a=222098&f=231

" A suspicious black bag found on the train tracks of VRE's Manassas line on Wednesday night held gruesome contents: human body parts, according to a VRE spokesman."

This article states that it was a black bag and alludes to multiple body parts.

The article link above also states, "It is the fifth case of humans remains being found in Northern Virginia since mid-August. Police say it does not appear the cases are related."

Very unsettling...

Thanks! I didn't see that in the original article, but as you can see from my map, there are quite a few remains that have been found in these parts lately, especially in the past couple of months.
